Available in three sizes and a wide array of colors, the Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ appeals to a wide variety of fresh and saltwater gamefish.

After finding their way with a cult following in the freshwater market, saltwater anglers are finally catching on to the power appeal of the swimbait! But a swimbait is no good to the angler if they have to work too hard to get it kicking, or if it falls apart after one fight with a toothy critter, well these problems and more are solved by the Z-Man’s DieZel MinnowZ!

Available in 4-, 5- and 7-inch models, and 37 fishy and unique colors, the DieZel MinnowZ has a size and color combo for just about every application out there. From bass and walleye on the freshwater side, to fluke and stripers in the salt, paddletail swimbaits are a go-to bait for an ever-expanding group of anglers. Add in the unparalleled softness, action, and 10X Tough ElaZtech durability, and you’ve got the most bulletproof swimbait on the market.

“Put a DieZel MinnowZ on the back of a HeadlockZ HD jighead and everything chews on it.” says Captain C.A. Richardson, Z-Man fan and exceptional inshore guide. “The 5-inch size is money for big redfish. Its slender profile moves cleanly through vegetation, such as turtle- or eelgrass on skinny water flats.

“You’d never believe how fish can get so tuned in to the mere 1-inch increase in bait size,” asserts Richardson, host of Flats Class TV. “It’s about matching prevailing baitfish size, for sure. But the 5-inch DieZel will be a big player for me, too, because it throws more water and gives off a larger silhouette. It’s also a key presentation in heavy current, rigged with a heavier jighead.”

The DieZel MinnowZ’s hook slot and split dorsal fin provide easy weedless rigging and problem-free hooksets, while being equally at home paired with the Z-Man Striper Eye, Redfish Eye or Swimbait Eye jigheads. You can even pair it up with a ChinlockZ SWS weighted swimbait hook for added action and appeal.

The DieZel MinnowZ, the MSRP is a very reasonable $4.49 for the 4-inch, $5.99 for the 5-inch and $7.99 for the 7-inch.
